Sweeties, the other half of Ooh La La had the chance to witness the 2nd annual Ankara Fashion and Cultural show in Miami a few weeks ago (talk about jealous). We’ve waited to share this experience because we wanted to get official pics. The pictures really illustrate the greatness that took place at the FIU Kovens Conference Center. When I say AMAZING, please believe me!
K.Crump says he was only going to support a friend who modeled in the show and fellow Tuskegee alum, Miss Dunnie Onasanya , but he got so much more.
He got live performances,
and haute African fashion.
Can you believe this is the only Ankara Fashion and Cultural show in Florida? The show gives a platform for emerging and established designers from the African Dispora.
So they’re raising awareness, while keeping folks fly and fabulous. Now that’s my type of event.
Since we’re talking fly and fabulous, lets get into this fashion. Bright colors, feminine silhouettes, and attention-grabbing pieces….I’m SOLD!
Here are few of my absolute favorites from the night.
Sickening!!! This gown is perfect for a ball or gala. If I get invited to the MET, this could work.
I need these pants pronto!
Fun and flirty!
